Aftermath

Lyrics

VERSE

It mattered to me to make you proud
It mattered to me - it doesn't now
I'm falling asleep to stay around
It mattered to me, but how

CHORUS

When you treat me like you do
Can I be enough for you
When I'm tired of wanting to

VERSE

It mattered to me to wait it out
The hours we get got counted down
You call it relief - I'm on the ground
You say it's just me, but how

Lyrics

VERSE

Here's another chance, the start of a new day
Here's another chance to live it the same
Here's another chance to find what you misplaced
Here's another chance - too late, gone to waste

It's not the time to be a disappointment to anyone.
It's not the time to be a disappointment to anyone.

CHORUS

A near miss at happiness
It's a passing phase
So come keep me company
Counting off the days

VERSE

Here's another chance to spell out what you need
Here's another chance - no one's listening.
Here's another chance to set yourself at ease
Here's another chance - it's just out of reach

Lyrics

VERSE

Choke
On the smoke
Of the bridges you've burned
You'll never learn
You'll never learn

Go
On your own
Give up all that you get
You've got nothing left
You've got nothing left at all

CHORUS

When you're wandering
Away from everyone that cares
You can't blame yourself
But you might as well
Because no one else is there

VERSE

Hope
Against hope
That it's all a bad dream
It's just as it seems
It's just as it seems

So leave
Everything
For a place in your mind
That you'll never find
You'll never find it at all

BRIDGE

Can see it through you, what's making you move
There's nothing to prove inside their minds
Easier to hide or straight out deny than face
But is there someplace...?
The harder you chase, the further away it gets

 

Lost

Lyrics

VERSE

Now I feel
so estranged
My face turning
turn away
And I see
nothing better
The sun's setting
down on me

CHORUS

But I feel so afraid
Is this my fate
In this place?
And I feel
So ashamed
Is this who I am?
Or have I changed?

Changed  for you.

VERSE

Don't be sorry
But don't you miss me?
Am I replaced?
And don't you worry
Just dismiss me
Change your history
Am I erased?

Don't be sorry
But don't you miss me?

Lyrics

VERSE

Your breath is hanging in the air
Full of the thoughts you've brought to bear
Looking for something to call home
Going somewhere to be alone

CHORUS

Watching the fire dance in the dark
They'll love you just the way you are
You don't have to change or try that hard

VERSE

Your eyes are staring out in space
Lost in the moment, out of place
Your friends can help you find your way
They'll understand what words can't say

Lyrics

VERSE

Always seems to bring me down
It just always brings me down
A silence so profound
To see that you're not around

Used to mean to much to me
You still mean to much to me
But now it's all just memories
And I still need
I still need but

CHORUS

You don't even bother
And I won't even try
You can us slipping farther
But we just turn away and sigh
Inside

VERSE

Think about you all the time
Think about you constantly
But now it all tastes bittersweet
And I still need
I still need but

Lyrics

VERSE

This season is at its end
Say goodbye my only friend
Whatever happened to us, words can never mend
I've nothing left to pretend

Lift this veil of fallen grace
See your prophet was a fake
All of this has proven more than I can take
Happiness that I forsake

In your eyes I saw escape
Killed away by leaps of faith
Whatever happened to the words you would say?
All I have just fades to grey
Whatever happened to a bittersweet delay?
All I am just goes away
Whatever happened to the words you would say?
Upon the turning away

Lyrics

VERSE

I'm sorry now
That I did
That I didn't listen
The holding out
Isn't quite
It's just like I envisioned
I'm in control
Yes I did
No I didn't give in
And yeah, I know
No I don't
What it is that's missing

CHORUS

In the aftermath
You can gather up what's left
You can have anything that you don't want
On the way to become someone you're not

VERSE

I'm stranded now
And it was my
It wasn't my decision
But I feel proud
Hollowed out
In my new position
I'm satisfied
Sacrificed
With present conditions
And yeah, I tried
What a lie
That's my best admission

Lyrics

VERSE

It's okay. The seasons change but you won't feel a thing.
Life still stays the same, but rearranges scenery.
Colors change, the breezes blow their hues into the sea.
Every day, a shade of grey

Coloring
All I see
Hazily

It's okay. The leaves will change but you will stay the same.
Disarranged, and pasted back together on a page.
Colors fade, the bleeding blurs them in and out of frame.
Every day, I'm far away

Coloring
All I see
Hazily

CHORUS

In your hands you write down all your dreams
In your hands you write your tragedies
In your head a world that no one sees
A diversion, this reality

Lyrics

VERSE

Imagine this
A loneliness, a feeling that remained
And picture this
A willingness to throw it all away
I wanted to
To prove to you
I had something to say
Don't look at me
(be)cause you can't see
Turn and walk away

CHORUS

I have lost all my faith
In feeble words and things you say
We all search for something real
Still we're all left unfulfilled

VERSE

So think on this
An emptiness, a place that's meant for you
All through my soul
The endless holes of places you don't use
I can't explain
I can't contain
The things I saw in you
I realize
That all our lies
Are something to hold to

Lyrics

VERSE

Faster than you fall
Answering the call
Play a part then fall again
Answering the call

CHORUS

Is all we know to do
The emptiness of a hopeful point of view
Is all you get to get you through

VERSE

Up against the wall
Ever after, all
Hope this isn't all we get
Up against the wall
